Vocal artist Ute Wassermann is a composer/performer,
improviser and interpreter of contemporary music. She
studied at the Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts with
Henning Christiansen, specializing in sound
installation and vocal performance, and studied
classical singing with Carol Plantamura (San Diego)
and Arnold van Mill (Hamburg). Since 1984 she
developed many special multivoiced vocal techniques,
catalogued by register, timbre and articulative
sequences which may be deconstructed and/or
superimposed and used to explore spatial resonance
phenomena. She has given numerous performances of her
own solo work and performs regularly with many
improvising musicians including duos with Richard
Barrett (live electronic) and with Birgit Ulher
(trumpet) in venues ranging from international
festivals to lofts. She has collaborated frequently
with composers who have created works especially for
her voice, including Henning Christiansen, Richard
Barrett, Chaya Czernowin, Hans-Joachim Hespos, Sven
Ake Johansson, Ana Maria Rodriguez and has performed
with many ensembles and orchestras including ASKO, KNM
Berlin, Elision and Münchener Kammerorchester.
